Goodie bag

IT was smiles all round for Athlone's Colm Moriarty and his trusty caddie, 17-year-old Fergal O'Shea from Killarney.

O'Shea, who plays off six, got a call from the golf club on Tuesday asking would he like to caddie, and duly linked up with Moriarty.

"We practised on Tuesday and played a round. Yesterday we practised for five or six hours and he was on the range with Bob Torrance.

"Today he played very steady and holed a few putts. Colm is a very nice person, very easy to caddie for. I was very lucky to get his bag today."
